Guess the Theme
I’m trying a new thing to get the children excited and more interactive. I often have a quiet bunch and feel like I’m just talking at them, I to get them involved more. I thought by showing them objects, having them tell me what it is and guessing the theme might help with the shy problem. The kids were not able to guess beach but I did find out who the most interactive kids in the group are!IMG_8040

Beach Ball
A little beach ball (make circle with hands)
A bigger beach ball (expand hands)
A great big beach ball (expand hands)
I see, now let’s count them
Are you ready?
One, two, three!

The Fish in the Sea (Tune: Wheels on the Bus)
with scarves
The fish in the sea go swish, swish, swish (wave scarf side to side)
Swish, swish, swish
Swish, swish, swish
The fish in the sea go swish, swish, swish
All day long
(The dolphins in the sea swim round and round)
(The sand in the sea drifts down, down, down)
(The waves on the sea go up and down)

Five Little Ocean Friends


Five little ocean friends on the ocean floor,
The starfish walks away, now there are four.
Four little ocean friends living in the sea,
The crab slides away, now there are three.
Three little ocean friends, looking for a clue,
“Glub, glub” says the lobster, now there are two.
Two little ocean friends, not having much fun,
Off swam the seahorse, now there is one.
One little octopus sad and all alone,
Back swims the starfish, back swims the crab,
Back swims the lobster, back swims the seahorse
And they played in the sea foam, safe at home.

Water, Water
Water, water everywhere (stretch arms out)
On my face and on my hair (touch face, then hair)
On my fingers, on my toes (wiggle fingers, touch toes)
Water, water on my nose (touch nose)
